e cm need • • • Spend Six Weeks in Europe i n f; e ?? ning to take in stride such experiences as being lett behind by the tour bus and a frustrating wait for money telegraphed from home but which never did arrive, were all a part of an unforgettable six weeks vacation in Europe for Miss Sylvia Sanford and her Kappa Delta sorority sister, Miss r ^ Betsy Batchelor of LaGrange. Miss Sanford, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. B. F. Sanford, 1567 Maple Ave., and Miss Batch- elof who were graduated in June from Illinois Wesleyan University in Bloomington, had been planning the trip since last January. They decided they wanted to tour the continent "on their own" rather than gohig as members of a conducted tour. Transportation arrangements were made through a travel agency and certain hotel accommodations were reserved in advance but otherwise they "played it by ear" as they went along. As they say in "private-eye" stories their M.O. (modus operandi) on reaching one of the major cities in the seven countries visited on the trip, was to take one of the many conducted local tours available to tourists, then mark places whteh they wanted to return to later. This way they were able to spend as much time as they liked at places which interested them most. Leaving O'Hare International Field at 6 o'clock in the evening on June 22 they were in Paris the next morning. The travelers visited the French Riviera and Cannes, and then went on to Madrid and Seville in Spain. After their rather strenuous tourist activities, they found several days on the beaches at Palma, Majorca, a Spanish possession in the Mediterranean, particularly enjoyable. They visited Nice and were in Rome for a week. It was when they were to take a three-day bus trip out of Rome to Naples, Pompeii and Capri that the bus forgot to pick them up. They went to the travel agency which put them up for the night and provided transportation on another bus so they could catch up with their tour. The girls had both studied Spanish which helped greatly in making themselves understood in Italy and they found that in situations such as this one a "vocal" approach was most effective in resolving the crisis. Among the most impressive sights in Rome for Miss Sanford at least, were the Michelangelo paintings in the Sistine Chapel which she "had heard about all her life" and which more than fulfilled her expectations. In some of the cities the travelers rented cars to get around. In Switzerland however, they bicycled to the timber line of Mt. Pilates on Lake Lucerne. At Munich, Germany, in the Bavarian Alps, they took a 10-hour bus trip and during a lay-over toured the medieval city of Regensburg. They stopped in Heidelberg and spent two and a half days in Berlin, where they found the Eastern Sector the most memorable but not the most pleasant. Very few people were on the streets, there were not many cars and the lack of reconstruction was very noticeable. In contrast, West Berlin was a thriving bustling city, Miss Sanford reported. Going back to Frankfort, they took a Rhine steamer from Wies baden to Cobletw, then went by train to Cologne and a visit to the cathedral which they put on a par with Notre Dame as classic examples of cathedral architecture. The incident of the missing money occurred at Frankfort. Miss Sanford's parents had wired her some money, a process which normally takes only a few hours. They waited for a week and the money never came. In reporting it to the consulate which is the required procedure, they were informed that several other tourists had had the same unfortunate experience that week. Their hotel accommodations in Amsterdam were in what had once been an old castle and the rooms were huge. They took a side trip to Markem Island in the Zuider Zee, one of the few places in Holland where the people still wear the native costume of the country. The young women made the trip to London by plane and stayed for two days of sightseeing before going on to Surrey where they visited in the home of Miss Batchelor's fiance's parents, who took them to places of interest during the remainder of their stay in England. They left London Airport Aug. 5 at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and with the assistance of the various time changes, reached O'Hare Field at 4:45 o'clock Chicago time. The girls found the people of the various countries most interesting and enjoyed the casual atmosphere of the sidewalk cafes and the endless opportunities for window shopping. Miss Batchelor also bought many things for her trousseau. They both want to see the Scandinavian countries which they didn't have time to do on this trip and are hoping to work in a short trip during the holidays. Miss Sanford will leave next week for Lexington, 111., where she will teach elementary vocal music. Miss Batchelor will be an English teacher in Aurora. By M.L.M.
